    Tomato taste test 2021

    Thanks for your comments. Obviously I will be watching them. Sure you're correct about strength sapping. Leggy cuttings in the past (not tomatos) I've potted up deeper. Thanks again.

    You may end up with short bushy plants as opposed to tall lanky ones. I'm sure different varieties have different growth habits to some extent.
